Kathleen Hanna and Le Tigre Return with New Pro-Hillary Clinton Track ‘I’m With Her’

Le TigreIt’s no surprise that feminist icon and punk powerhouse Kathleen Hanna is voting for Hillary Clinton. In a new song released today, the newly resurrected Le Tigre, the trio of Hanna, Johanna Fateman and JD Samson, have released “I’m With Her” – and, as the title clearly spells out, they’re HRC fans.

The Pro-Clinton anthem’s video was made by director Laura Parnes and producer Tanya Selvaratnam for Filmmakers for Hillary, “a coalition of creatives committed to electing Hillary Clinton as President of the United States,” whose “mission is to organize creativity and inspiration into persuasion and mobilization.”

The video features the band, Hillary, herself, and…cats. (Because the internet.) It’s all sorts of sassy and silly, but at the same time, dead fucking serious with rally and protest footage proudly displaying signs reading “Woman Power” and “Trust Women.”

And to think people get all riled up about Green Day getting political on American Idiot.

Le Tigre’s last album, This Island, bowed in 2004. In 2011, a documentary was released called Who Took the Bomp? Le Tigre on Tour, following the band on their international farewell tour in 2004–05. It took a racist, under-qualified douchebag to resurrect Le Tigre – but hey! At least The Donald accomplished something!

Vid and lyrics:

“I’m With Her” lyrics: 

One, two, one, two, one, two, three
Who do we want? We want HRC!

She doesn’t bake cookies, doesn’t play much golf
And the whole world is watching her persistent cough
Pass the wicked witch a glass of water
Careful not to spill it, you might melt The Donald
She’s already done the math
And she’s ready with a plan
And she’s always got to work
Twice as hard as every man
Bye bye, bye bye . . . Trump has got to go!

I’M WITH HER
TO THE TOP
SHE’S WITH US
WE WON’T STOP . . .
I want a problem solver, a true rock climber
Pantsuit-wearing herstorical first-timer
I want a listener, a negotiator
A legal scholar, supreme court nominator
We can’t, we can’t, we can’t we can’t, we can’t wait . . .

Trump thinks Putin is a “very strong leader”
Just like him, a fascist bottom feeder
Building a wall is his greatest vision
Bigotry colors his every decision
She’s already done the math
And she’s ready with a plan
And she’s always got to work
Twice as hard as every man
Bye bye, bye bye . . . Trump has got to go!

I’M WITH HER. . .

Abortion is healthcare, it’s a human right
Policy homework ’til the morning light
NRA stands for murder and hate
Gun laws now! We can’t wait!
One, two, one, two, one, two, three
I don’t want a racist in the President’s seat
One, two, one, two, one, two, three
I don’t want a sexist, it’s 2016!
One, two, one, two, one, two, three
Who do we want? We want HRC!
